    Thank-you,



    Does that go for both ends of the negative cable. Or should the negative on the dead battery go onto the battery post?

Scouter, You can put the negative cable on an engine bolt or bracket. Be sure you hook up the negative last, we don't want sparks near the battery.
Good luck.

    That goes for both ends. You don't want sparks around a dead battery as there may be hydrogen gas in the area which is flammable.

    Good luck.

How far do we have to drive caravan to reset computer for inspection..


Your Dodge Grand Caravan, like all vehicles manufactured after 1996, has an on-board diagnostic system. When one of your Grand Caravan's sensors indicates that a system is not operating properly, it will trigger the vehicle's "check engine" light. Sometimes the cause of the error can be as simple as tightening a loose gas cap. In order to verify that the cause of the problem has been fixed, the computer on your Grand Caravan will need to be reset. This process is simple and takes less than 10 minutes.

Things You'll Need

I replaced the battery terminal cable ends. Now the car will not start, There is a clicking noise from the starter.


Bad connection on cable ends or where they connect to battery. Quick check is if you have a good set of jumper cables, use the jumper cable as a replacement for what maybe the defective one. Hook negative cable good to battery neg. post and then put other side on neg cable to engine ground on block. See if it cranks, if it does than the trouble is on the neg. cable. If not then put positive cable on pos. post of battery. Then put other side of pos. cable on the starter post, try to start. If it cranks then the trouble is on the pos side of cable. Hope this helps.

How to jump start my 2005 Pontiac Montana?


Using jumper cables :
1. Connect one red clamp to the positive terminal (+) of running car's battery and the other end red clamp to the positive terminal (+) of the dead car's battery .
2. Connect one black clamp to the negative terminal (-) of running car's battery and the other end black clamp to the negative terminal (-) of the dead car's battery.
Basically... (+) to (+)...and... (-) to (-)
3. Crank up the car needing the jump.
4. Once car is jumped and running...remove clamps in reverse order.

Using battery pack: Connect in the same fashion as above.

Battery is drained


try an old fashioned battery boost from another car or truck. leave the other car running while boosting your. run booster cable from the booster car to your truck make sure to run them the same way on each battery. positive on booster to positive side battery on the truck. run the negative from booster car to negative on your truck. allow the car to run for about 10minutes before you attempt to start your truck. this allows your battery to build up enough charge for the start up of your truck. after your truck starts take the cables off right away. let your truck run for at least 15minutes to allow time for your battery to build up before you attempt to drive it.that way if it should die,you'll have enough charge on your battery for a restart. thank you for choosing fixya.com hope this helps.

Try boosting the van.If that works then you either need to clean the cables and battery posts or you need a battery.If boosting it does not work then you may need a starter or the cables to it have came loose,also the engine ground could be the culprit,if this is true then put your booster cables in this configuration;positive to positive and negative from the boosting cars negative post to your engine's block,find a good clean grounding point on the block and hook the clamp there.If the van starts then clean the factory ground point,replace the cable end,or replace the cable.Let me know if none of this info helps and i will give you more things to try.

First try boosting car with extra battery, attach posotive cable of booster battery to posotive cable of your battery and negative cable of booster battery to engine block, never to negative post of your battery, If it still does not turn over,Try turning over the motor with a socket and stong arm attched to crankshaft bolt. It could be that your motor has seized due to lack of lubrication
